Jesse and Jordan are in a village in India. They are joined by comedian Chris Fairbanks. A discussion of Jesse's birthday quickly becomes a discussion of Jamie Kennedy.

Podcast: Coyle & Sharpe Ep. 5: The Ashtray

| 1 comment


In the early 1960s, James P. Coyle and Mal Sharpe roamed the streets of San Francisco, microphone in hand, roping strangers into bizarre schemes and surreal stunts. Today, their humor is a cultural touchstone for artists as varies as Henry Rollins and The Upright Citizens Brigade.

These recordings are from the Sharpe family archive, which is tended by Mal's daughter, Jennifer Sharpe. You can learn more about Coyle & Sharpe on their website or on MySpace. Their recent box set is These 2 Men Are Imposters.

This week, Coyle & Sharpe discuss with a New Zealander the possibility of growing an ashtray from his forehead. The ashtray would be sold.

BALDWIN: DO NOT FUCK THIS UP FOR ALL OF US.

| 7 comments

I know for a fact that Alec Baldwin reads this blog, so I'm just going to write to him directly.

Dear Alec,

Sounds like your family is in a bit of a mess. That happens to the best of us. I'm really sorry your business got leaked to the press, and I hope you straighten things out.

I hear you might quit television.

DON'T EVEN FUCKING THINK ABOUT IT.

WE HAVE A GOOD THING GOING, ALEC. A GREAT THING EVEN.

IF YOU QUIT 30 ROCK, IT'S OVER FOR US. IT WILL GET CANCELLED, AND I WILL BE REDUCED TO A QUIVERING HEAP OF JELLO.

AGAIN: DON'T EVEN FUCKING THINK ABOUT IT.

Love,
Jesse

Podcast: Jordan, Jesse GO! Ep. 20: Sadness, etc.

| 0 comments


In this week's Jordan Jesse GO!, we discuss our joys and sadnesses.

Introduction
Jesse and Jordan are on a marina. We address the fact that a listener named Mika thought a "beer koozie" was a jacuzzi full of beer. Also: Jordan wants to get a massage, but he's worried he'll accidentally go to a handjob store.
Elderly Greeks
Jordan attended his house-mate Lauren's grand-Uncle's 80th birthday. Children insulted the uncle. Jordan is worried that the more comedy he does, the less he is able to directly experience life -- he just sees everything as comedy fodder.
A Drinking Game?
What would be the rules of a JJGO or TSOYA drinking game?

Puppies, Etc

Jesse's girlfriend Theresa has hormones which are starting to demand children. So they are thinking about getting a dog instead.

Guy Quits His Job
Our new thing is celebrating important moments in your life with you. A guy called in immediately after quitting his job, which he hated.

ACTION ITEMS

* Should we have Rutger Hauer on JJGO? If so: what should we do with him?
* If you're creative, do you see everything through that lens? Does it intrude on your direct experience of life?
* Have a rule for the JJGO drinking game?
* Should Jordan join Crunch fitness, and where can he get a massage that won't turn into a handjob?


LISTENER SONG

"Doo Doo Doo Doo" by The Screaming Eagles from "Enemy Gold" (Thanks, Dave!)
